Great local place that shows the flare of town. Enjoyed the seafood combo and beer with those amazing hush puppies. The server was great and the was a two man band playing.

We live 5 minutes from this restaurant and had never tried it, so we decided to stop by Friday night. We sat ourselves and waited and waited and waited for a server. There were very few customers when we arrived, so could not figure out what took so long. We ordered drinks and looked over the menu. The couples that... More

TOO MANY SMOKERS We were outside but apparently it's still ok to smoke. Just had our drinks. Had to ask twice for my bill. The waitress was more interested in her buddies than us. The bill was $12.72. No coin change given. Was going to ask but decided that's the tip. Not going back..

This place was exactly what I was looking for in an authentic old Florida restaurant. It is laid back and nothing fancy but the food was good and reasonably priced and the waitress was very attentive. The back of the place has seating open to the water which adds to the atmosphere of the place. If birds bother you, you... More

Lunch for two on the patio facing the canal. Live music by Knee Deep a local duo. I had a soft shell sandwich with a side of coleslaw. The crab had a panko crumb style batter, it was plump and cooked through. Not a big slaw fan, the version here has coconut in it and I ate the whole serving.... More

OK... the Snapper (they were out of grouper) rueben sandwich was outstanding. I really liked the slaw with coconut and pineapple, too. The Pine Island Sound band was playing some cool tunes and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Our guest had the friend oyster sandwich and said that it was great. Service was not exactly fast, however, it's not a... More

The Snapper Reuben is my favorite and yes there are times we run out of grouper depending on weather and tides determines our boats leaving and arriving at dock but you know it is fresh local.

And the Bloody Mary's were great! However, if you're looking for any kind of "nice", it's not. I think they could profit from some do-over. It's just old picnic tables, and they don't look very good or clean, under a warehouse roof. It probably is an old fish house, but I'm thinking they've confused icky looking furniture and unkempt surroundings... More

I love going to the Olde Fish House for my favorite item, fried grouper sandwich. You can also have them broiled or blackened. Sit outside, listen to live music and right by the water. Nothing better!

Back 5 or 6 years ago, the Old Fish House was the "old style" fish market type of place, which meant a take-out window and all self-service; I wish they would revert back to that model. My Grouper Reuben was good; seems to be shrinking in size though. My husband didn't care for his chicken sandwich at all; should have... More
